Kona Community Hospital (KCH) established a trauma program committee to develop policies and procedures in order for Kona Community Hospital to function and be designated as a Level III Trauma Center (a facility that is able to provide resources for emergency resuscitation, stabilization, emergency surgery and intensive care of most trauma patients). Kona Community Hospital anticipates designation as a Level III Trauma Center in 2011.
